Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Cowboy Sandwich

I really dig the 71-72 Other One and darkstars with the cowboy tunes stuck in the middle. I was on a jamband thread and made the comment of not knowing any bands that could pull of space travel to wild west like that and Tell sent me this back as a prime example. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lPRFdoAmGzs&; wondering if anyone else has examples or favorites of their own I like the 11-14-71 Other One > MAMU > Other One they keep toying with the cowboy theme before it is let out. Also did this happen after 72 at all?

11/7/71 DS > Other One > MAMU > Other One is the absolute best of these I've ever heard. The transition into MAMU is chilling. They somehow manage to make them sound like the same song.

12/4/71 is another good one: MAMU > Other One > Mexicali > Other One. The transitions are as smooth as could be.

How can I even join this conversation without sounding rude? ;)

But I do love me a Cowboy Sandwich.....with the 11/7/71 DS > Other One > MAMU > Other One being one of my faves.

welcome back Miss D, though I see it was Tell's "Roll Call" that brought you out of seclusion.

Thanks for all the suggestions but Tell's may still be the best.

There is the 11/14/73 medley where Big River is stuck inside the Other One... And El Paso (along with a few other songs) is in the 11/21/73 Playing in the Band medley. (Earlier country-song Playing medleys with Half-Step & El Paso include 10/21/73 and 10/27/73, though they're not as good.)

Late '71/Europe '72 is really the only time they did Other One>MAMU>Other One. (I think 8/6/71 is actually the first?) But after spring '72, you don't get any Uncles in the Other One - sometimes in '72/73 they head for Bobby McGee. But mainly the Other One segues into a ballad. And their country tunes were kept more segregated in later years.

Some split Dark Stars:
10/21/71 Dark Star>Sittin on Top of the World>Dark Star (not the best example)
11/15/71 Dark Star>El Paso>Dark Star
12/5/71 Dark Star>MAMU>Dark Star
4/24/72 Dark Star>MAMU>Dark Star
Sometimes later in '72/73 they'd do Dark Star>El Paso. (Actually not that many times, though the few times they did, like Veneta, 8/21/72 & 8/1/73, are pretty famous.)
The 9/27/72 Dark Star>Cumberland is notable; and a few other times that year they'd do oddball songs out of Dark Star, like Jack Straw or Mississippi Half-Step.

The first time I heard the DS>El Paso>DS, it struck me as so unexpected that I actually found myself singing along to EP...not a song I even listen to on a frequent basis. The juxtaposition of the two songs, and an amazing DS, has really vaulted up to the top of my Cowboy Sandwich (or in this case a cowboy filling) list.

12/5/71 DS>Top of the World is a blast.

I love that Venetta DS> El Paso...It took on a whole new meaning after I watched Sunshine Daydream for the first time. The audience is so hypnotized by Dark Star I dont think that half of them even realized El Paso was playing until midway through the tune. Daydream captures it perfectly. They pan out to the audience when El Paso starts and everyone is still standing there in stunned silence from the Dark Star they just witnessed. Just Awesome...

Of course, among that audience some of them might not have realized Dark Star was playing til it was half over!
I wonder what that guy on the pole thought he was hearing...
